what happened to square_root() for rationals?
I have some old code that takes the square_root() of rational numbers. This function seems to be long gone. How do I replace its functionality?
I found online an old (ver 1.4.1) sage manual that says that square_root() for rationals: "Return the positive rational square root of self, or raises a ValueError if self is not a perfect square."
So with this information is easy enough to code up a simple function to replace it.
I do wonder why it went away and or if it has been renamed or replaced somehow.
